Smart Bets: Cappadonna

Hip-hop artist and Wu-Tang Clan member Cappadonna (aka “Cappachino The Great” and “Donna Cappa Goines") emerged in '95 on the tracks "Ice Cream" and "Ice Water" from Raekwon's Only Built For Cuban Linx. He first appeared with Wu-Tang on '97's platinum album, Wu-Tang Forever. Cappadonna's solo studio debut was '98's The Pillage, which went gold. His most recent effort is last year's The Pilgrimage, and he has a mix tape, Eyrth, Wynd & Fyre due out in January. Which means Cappadonna is keeping busy. But he's still making time to stop by Asheville Music Hall for a Saturday, Dec. 15 performance. Jon Farmer, B-Free, J. Youngin and DJ Ra Mak open. 10 p.m., $10 in advance or $12 day or show.
